Weekending . . .

Do you know about the Scrap Yarn Sock Advent Calendar? I’ve been waiting for this year’s knit along ever since I realized I’d just missed it last year. Every day, starting December 1st, you get instructions for that day’s stripe. By the end of Advent, you have a pair of colorful, fun stripey socks! I can hardly wait!

I think all my crocheting lately has been about the COLOR!!

I’ve been crocheting colorful squares during reading.

I’ve basically been living with a crochet hook in my hand!

When it occurred to me that the Scrap Yarn Advent Sock was on the horizon, I realized I’d let my Travel Shawl languish. My plan now is to try to finish it by the time the sock knit along starts on December 1st. I’ve got about three and a half repeats of the main pattern left to do, plus the border. I’m not sure I’ll make it, but I’m going to give it a good try.

The Travel Shawl deadline has proven invigorating. That, a little visiting, and a nice long walk are on the agenda for today.

I took this on yesterday’s walk. It’s one of our local woodpecker hangouts.

What are you up to this weekend?


  1. I can see crocheting while watching movies, but there is no way I could crochet (or do anything else) while reading. That must be another of your super-powers. Our weekend has been mostly about errands and food. I had one real “goal” that I wanted to get done didn’t happen, and I’m about out of weekend now 🙁
